Speaking on BBC's Match of the Day 2 programme at 23:07 on November 27th, Hammers legend Trevor Sinclair singled out Darren Randolph for praise, highlighting his importance to the team during their 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Republic of Ireland international has been in impressive form of late, and has obviously impressed West Ham boss Slaven Bilic which, in turn, has seen him usurp Adrian as the club's first-choice goalkeeper for the past two games.

And Sinclair, who made 206 appearances for the Hammers during a five-and-a-half year spell with the club, lavished praise upon Randolph, labelling him as a late developer, when speaking on BBC's Match of the Day 2:
“He played his first match last week against Spurs, and he was outstanding. He's done really well. There will be no surprises from West Ham fans. He’s a late developer, and he’s doing well.”

The East Londoners will need Randolph to be at his very best over the next two weeks, with their EFL Cup quarter-final against Manchester United on Wednesday, followed by two Premier League games at home to Arsenal and away at Liverpool.
Many West Ham fans will be pleased to see the Irishman finally given his chance with an extended run in the first-team, and many believe he is a better all-round goalkeeper than Adrian - who has been prone to the odd costly mistake.
